Parelli Natural Horsemanship, a people-training program focused on the study of horse behavior and horsemanship skills, proudly announces the launch of its first children’s educational program!
The first product that will be released is Mini Magic, a toy prototype of Pat Parelli’s mare Magic. Packaged in a tin “lunch” box, the model will be accompanied by a string for halter and lead-tying, one two-sided foldable play mat, and one “How To Play With Your Horse” booklet. The model is about 7 inches tall, and is constructed with very durable plastic that is designed to be taken outside and played with in the dirt for maximum fun!
Mia Maluchi-Elliott, Director of Mini Parelli, explained her vision with the launch of this product: “Mini Parelli is about engaging kids’ imaginations. We wanted to make sure that children are able to enjoy playing with ‘horses’ in a completely safe, imagination-based environment, and Mini Magic is the perfect introduction!” Every aspect of Mini Parelli will be framed by Pat Parelli’s 8 Principles of Horsemanship, so that children will grow up knowing safe and natural methods of working with horses.
Along with the debut of Mini Magic, Mini Parelli will also launch a new website in 2014, www.miniparelli.com. The purpose of the Mini Parelli website is to educate and encourage audience interaction with their Mini model horses. “We are going to set up a curriculum of activities and games, with a new horsemanship ‘theme’ released each month,” explained Maluchi-Elliott. The themes are planned around different facets of horsemanship that will engage children in the Parelli Program.
Parelli Natural Horsemanship is very excited about launching its first children’s educational program! The Mini Magic model, and other future Mini Parelli products, will be available to purchase via Parelli’s online shop, shop.parelli.com.
